The Plague following GDC’s centenary

Updating the previous post on De Carlo here, the Plague soon overwhelmed Italy and now wreaks more havoc on England.  Of the three early 2020 offering planned:

First, the book arrived before the Plague, and my essay, Uno Sguardo a Giancarlo De Carlo is found here

Second, the issue of Histories of Post-war Architecture built around GDC is finally appearing (HPA5/2019/2) and my essay – words, then drawings, then photographs – has just reached me at the end of April 2020 when the Plague is said to be peaking here. Domestic action: Living in a house for jumpers. GDC and Ca’ Romanino is found here

Third, while Antonello Alici’s wonderful marathon of De Carlo readings did begin in early April (start here), his great De Carlo and Britain, which was to have been in Cambridge last week, was smothered by the Plague and may morph into future shapes in the future.
